we'll find out whether he is predicting six more weeks of winter or perhaps an early spring. there are people in both camps. keep your fingers crossed for which ever you are wishing for. >> i wouldn't pack away your long johns just yet. not a weather guy, but that's my thought. super bowl weekend, a party in new orleans. jenna wolfe has spent the past few days. what's going on down in the big easy? >> guys, so much going on down there. this city knows how to do it right. the first time new orleans hosts the super bowl since hurricane katrina. a rashlgab a remarkable job getting this city ready for the thousands converging upon new orleans. the music plays 24 hours a day. a lot of the fans we spoke to. they are divided into three groups, ravens fans, 49ers fans, and people looking for any excuse to be on bourbon street for 24 straight hours. got that?
5:01 am
we will check in with the harbaugh brothers who will be going up against each other and catch up with some celebrities. so much more coming up. we'll check back in a bit. >> sounds like somebody did an all nighter. >> i think so. for work. had to do it for work, right, jenna? >> toothpicks. am i flurry eyed yet? all for work. >> we'll see you in a bit. in terms of other news, a new milestone for wall street. dow closes for the first time since the financial crisis. what that means for you and your money. >> and a new chapter for hillary clinton. former secretary of state is waking up this morning. probably still sleeping in. without an official job for the first time in 30 years, what's ahead for her. >> and extreme sport. with the death of a snow mobiler at the x games, we'll take a look at whether competitors are pushing the envelope too far. has this become a little too extre
5:02 am
extreme? a serious long-term relationship for pop superstar taylor swift. not a guy, but diet coke. it's sending the wrong message to younging up fans according to some critics. we begin in alabama. a police standoff, and a 5-year-old held in an underground bunker enters its fifth day. >> reporter: this standoff has dragged on for more than 85 hours. police remain tightlipped. but there is concern from local residents about how the dropping temperatures overnight are affecting the safety of the child. so far, police say that child is unharmed. on friday, investigators released this picture of the suspect. 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes. nbc has confirmed, not only was he in the navy in the '60s, but he earned the vietnam service medal and several other awds. police towed away the school bus
5:03 am
from the crime scene, it had been there since tuesday afternoon. dykes boarded it, shot and killed the bus driver when he wouldn't hand over a few children. dykes has been holed up in an underground bunker nearby with a 5-year-old boy named ethan with asperg asperger's syndrome. they have lowered medicine and a coloring book for ethan through the pipe. the visitation for the bus driver, who is being called a hero, charles poland jr. is scheduled for later today. local residents are hoping and praying for a peaceful resolution lester. >> thank you. clint van zandt is a former fbi profiler. >> lester, good to be with you. >> this man has a television, we have to be mindful. we don't know what he's watching at this hour, but with that in mind what are the options here? the fact that things are stable?
5:04 am
is that in itself a good sign? >> it really is my background as a hostage negotiator also, i've been in these situations, and i know the fbi negotiator is working very hard with mr. dykes, trying to extend to him the hand of freedom, trying to offer him the way to come out of this situation. he probably took this little boy hostage, lester, as he was trying to build a defense between him and law enforcement, because he was supposed to go to court last wednesday. well, he has accomplished that. somebody died. i know that negotiators will be trying to minimize that and saying it was a terrible thing. but you may not have wanted that to happen. and what they would like mr. dykes to do is you and i may be talking to him right now, lester, is to come out and tell his side of the story. we have heard neighbors and other people rant and rage and suggest that the type of person he is. we know he's a vietnam veteran that served his country. this is time for him to come
5:05 am
out, to release that little boy, but for him to stand up and say this is the reason, this is what drove me to this. so i think there are millions of people who are ready to hear what he has to say. >> we've all seen so many movies and tv shows, where after ten minutes, s.w.a.t. teams go storming in. this is a very difficult space. a four foot by six foot long bunker. typically these things end without a raid, do they not? >> 85% or more of standoff situations like this, at least end nonviolently, where the individual -- times sometimes it takes hours, sometimes takes days, but what's positive, we know that the little boy being held, he's being cared for, he has medication. i heard a report suggesting that there was some type of heat source. we know this is underground, so the temperature is going to be relatively stable. now, i'm not making light of
5:06 am
this for this little boy to be away from his parents going on five days, but the reality is, he has not been hurt. so law enforcement doesn't want anything -- doesn't want to do anything precipitously that could cause anybody to be hurt at this time when the talking cure will likely work in the situation. >> and the term negotiation, i me mean, suggests you give something, you get something back. how far can police go. this man was wanted in the one murder that occurred on the school bus. what are the limitations of negotiators? >> i have been in similar situations, talking to similar gunmen, and you minimize what was done, suggest to mr. dykes that your weapon could have gone off accidentally. somebody could have grabbed at it, you didn't go on the bus to shoot anybody, you were trying to protect your property, you were afraid of the government, you were afraid of the sheriff's office. a lot of people today, have
5:07 am
those same thoughts and ideas come out and share those ideas. and what the negotiators are trying to do, lester, build the psychological umbilical cord between themselves mr. dykes to the point where he finally feels, okay, i'm safe to come out, and i want to share my information, i want to make a statement, i want people to hear my side of it, part and parcel of that, both of them coming out safe. >> clint, you bring some expert insight. appreciate you coming on this morning, whoep for a succee hop successful and safe outcome. if you have any money in stocks, you may be feeling a little better about it this morning. maybe a smile on your face. dow finished the day over the 14,000 mark for the first time since the fall of 2007. tom costello explains why. a big rally on wall street friday with the dow back over 14,000. a lot has changed since the last
5:08 am
time it crossed that mark, on october 12, 2007. within a year, lehmann brothers and bear stearns had failed. housing prices went off a cliff. and the unemployment rate went from 4.7% to 10% before falling back to 1now. >> 80% of the people we saw had been out of work for three months up to two years. >> reporter: julie onberg has been out of work for 16 months. >> my last job was front desk at a pain management company, and just -- i actually got sick. and couldn't be there any longer. >> reporter: nationwide, 12 million americans are still out of work. >> 7.9% unemployment, simply not good enough. wages don't rise, older folks don't see enough stock market gains to retire, not enough jobs
5:09 am
for young people leaving school. >> reporter: the jobs picture slowly improving, a different story on wall street. after bottoming out four years ago, the dow has since climbed 111%. cnn has seen a mood shift on wall street. the economy is slowly improving, not fast enough for a lot of people. unemployment too high. some key economic indicators are getting better. what's going right? manufacturing and construction activity picked up. the unemployment rate edged up to 7.9% in january, we learned that more jobs added in 2012 than first reported. fear of a financial crisis is lessening. back in portland, julie's job hunt is now over. >> i got the job! >> reporter: one more piece of economic news. gas prizes moving to the upside and fast. up 13 cents in a week. up 20 cents in a month but, of course, you will pay more if you
5:10 am
are in california or the great lakes or the east coast. for "today," tom costello, nbc washington. time to get a check of the day's other top stories. >> with jenna in new orleans, tom is filling in. good morning, everyone. we start with another attempt to rein in iran's nuclear ambitions. vice president joe biden says that the u.s. is ready to hold talks, but only if tehran is serious. biden says there is type for diplomacy to succeed, but it needs to and the iran built a new fighter jet which it claims can evade radar. there is a growing self-reliance in military technology. in this country, another online hacker attack. twitter says it quickly shut down at least one attempt to gain access to user data, but
5:11 am
hackers may have collected information on 250,000 of more than 200 million active users, including user names, e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords it reset passwords and sent them e-mails telling them to create a new one and encourages users to change passwords regardless of their account is compromised. the scottish terrier affectionately known as barney, george bush's beloved dog has died at the age of 12. the statement on president bush's facebook page. barney never discussed politics and was a faithful friend. and the usda is proposing a new set of rules which would ban candy, high-calorie sports drinks and greasy food sold on school campuses. not a football fan?
5:12 am
another bowl you might enjoy on sunday. puppy bowl, animal planet's take on the big day. shelter puppies take part in the big game. if dogs aren't your thing, you might enjoy the kitty halftime show. we spoke to animal planet this morning and good news. none of those puppies, none of those kitties have failed any drug test. no doping in the puppy bowl. >> talk about that. >> rumors, especially with the white lab, his name is pearl. >> pearl i've heard. i'm happy you cleared that up for us. dylan dreyer with the first check of the forecast. i tried to give your forecast with groundhog day. i have no idea. >> i don't think phil knows what's going on either. because 126 years, 15 times he hasn't seen his shadow, and i just -- i think most of the time it's cloudy. i don't know what's going on here. but this year too it's cloudy, flurries, about 8 degrees in punxsutawney, pennsylvania, and
5:13 am
i'm just putting out there. i think he'll see his shadow. don't know if it has to do with lights or what's going on. he makes the call later this morning. across the country, windchills down around zero and below zero. northern minnesota, feels like 15 degrees below zero right now. and won't warm up much in afternoon. snow showers across indiana and into ohio. into kentucky. we could end up seeing a couple inches of snow. west virginia, ends up with 3 to 6 inches, west looks good. pretty mild in the rockies today with highs in good morning from nbc bay area weather center this morning. i'm anthony slaughter. temperatures starting off to 50 in most locations our cool spots often to the east and north bay. today another bright day is on the way. we are cloudy now but after 11:00, beautiful sunshine, for
5:14 am
groundhog today bright conditions and tomorrow hoping for a win for our super bowl sunday, go 49ers! >> that's the latest. >> thanks. the most traveled secretary of state in u.s. history is jobless today for the first time in decades. former secretary of state hillary clinton received a warm sendoff in washington on friday. and while her political future may be in question, one thing is certain -- her short-term plans include a lot of rest. kristin welker is at the white house with more. good morning. >> reporter: lester, good morning you to. that's right, clinton has joked about looking forward to sleeping in this weekend. this after visiting more than 100 countries, earning praise and some criticism along the way. secretary of state hillary clinton starting a new chapter in her storied life. >> i cannot fully express how grateful i am to those with whom
5:15 am
i have spent many hours here in washington, around the world, and in airplanes. [ laughter ] >> reporter: clinton spent a lot of time on airplanes, traveling more than a million miles from overseeing a shift toward democracy in myanmar to helping to broker a cease-fire last year when tensions flared between israel and hamas. the final weeks of her tenure were rocky when she testified on capitol hill about the attack against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. foreign policy experts say she didn't have one signature achievement, but she did leave a mark. >> on balance, i think that she's notable for a steadiness, for a relatively error-free period, for extremely loyal service to the president. >> reporter: her journey to secretary of state was somewhat improbable.
5:16 am
from the white house as first lady to a senate to a tough campaign against her now-former boss. >> i was a big admirer of hillary's before our primary battles. >> if the roles had been reversed and i had ended up winning, i would have desperately wanted him to be in my cabinet. so if i'm saying i would have wanted him to say yes to me, how am i going to justify saying no to my president? >> reporter: while today she can sleep in, clinton's next move is a mystery. she joked to "the new york times" in november, "maybe i'll get a decorating show." the speck blaulation about a wh house run in 2016 has begun in earnest. >> for the foreseeable future, i don't think that i will be at all political because there's so much else i need to do. >> reporter: now sources close to clinton tell me she really hasn't made up her mind about whether or not she'll run in 2016. it's certainly one of the options on the table. they say right now she's just focused on get something rest. lester? >> thank you. now, 18 minutes after the
5:17 am
hour. here's erica. >> thanks. if you're one of the millions of people who struggle with your weight, new findings show the problem may not be you. turns out some commonly held beliefs about what it takes to slim down and stay that way are wrong. that's according to a report published in the "new england journal of medicine." dr. lori maska is director of cardiology at new york presbyterian hospital. nice to see you. it's always nice to know it's not our fault, right? >> absolutely. >> let's look at some of these commonly held beliefs. and find out whether or not they're true. we hear a lot that a rapid weight loss doesn't stick. if you lose that 100 pounds, chances are you're putting it back on right away, and this can lead to yo-yo dieting s. that true? >> a lot of research stems back to the 1960s when rapid weight loss had some adverse associations with it. so doctors tend to recommend slower weight loss. but new research really shows that there's tremendous individual variability. and actually some people that have rapid weight loss actually sustain it much longer than
5:18 am
those who do not. in fact, i have to tell you in my clinical practice, it really helps people to get a jump-start. you know, they feel good. they get that positive feedback. and they can stay with the program a little bit longer. >> it's a great motivator personally and when you hear feedback from other people. a lot of times you're told you should set realistic weight loss goals. even if you have to lose 50 pounds, maybe start out with 25 so it doesn't feel so overwhelming. >> right. and i have to confess, i'm a person that has always promoted realistic goals amongst my patients. but we are a high achieving society. we're all individuals and many of us respond to raising that bar higher. we don't treat our kids all the same, our patients the same, athletes the same. people are motivated in different ways. don't be discouraged. you know, if you really want to set a high goal for yourself, go for it. you might actually be very successful. >> all right. also, there's a lot of talk about gym class or physical education in schools which we've
5:19 am
seen cut in a lot of school districts because of budget issues. there's a belief that these classes can actually lead to weight loss. i find that surprising. >> well, i'm concerned about this myth. i think that we have to keep in mind and underscore the -- that gym class in their current form, they're not like in the old days when you got to play. many of our physical education classes now are filled with learning rules, writing about how you feel about this sport, you know, we need to ingrain habits in kids early. and even though our research doesn't show that the current form of physical education classes is associated with weight loss, it's not sensitive enough to see the changes in body composition. more importantly, erica, it builds confidence in kids to actually have lifelong habits of physical activity. so we have to keep in mind what our end goal here is. >> that's what's important, to instill that goal in kids. just to get moving every day so they carry it through their adult life. >> absolutely.
5:20 am
as you know, it's a lifelong struggle for many people trying to lose weight. >> in terms of getting moving. there's talk about whether sex is a good workout. a good calorie burner. what is the verdict? >> right. it turns out that sex doesn't burn a lot of calories. and this is really in line with a lot of recent research dispelling old myths that we need a lot of high-intensity, short bursts of activity. what we're seeing now is in order to lose weight, we need long, duration, high intensity. the average person, a sexual bout is six minutes. if this is your form of physical activity for six minutes, you have to increase the time you spend. >> we'll have to leave it there. nice to have you with us this morning. >> my pleasure. thanks. still to come, it is groundhog day. will punxsutawney phil see his shadow? find out if we're in for an early spring. and look at one commercial deem toad sexy for its own good. it's its star, supermodel kate upton, will answer critics live.

girl after she was reported missing by a guardian. parents around the community say they are stunned. >> oh my god, i could just imagine if it was one of my own, and it being so close to where we live and our daughter goes to school with them. when we're strict with them they know why, that can happen. >> police will release more information and the circumstances surrounding her death after proper family notification. right now police say there are no suspects in the case. and we want to take another look at that seven-day forecast because we know that your weekend weather is important to you. >> yes, very important weekend across the bay area. what would be awesome by this time tomorrow, really be able to fill wh feel what is it, the calm before the storm. clouds this morning, sunshine this afternoon. mid-60s today and tomorrow. there will be a storm system that gives us rain late in the week thursday and friday but i think everybody's mind is right now on the super bowl. >> we'll have your super bowl coverage at 7:00 and more local

so we could be in for an early spring. >> no -- i think if he doesn't see his shadow, then we are in for an early spring, isn't that -- >> well, in theory if he doesn't see his shadow, we are. i think if we look at the track record, it may not always add up. therefore, we've added a modfire to make sure that our bases are covered. >> dylan will have the opposing view. >> she'll have the more official weigh-in for us. a big day, groundhog day. there you go. spring, bring it on. i'm erica hill alongside lester holt. coming up, did the man behind the manti te'o hoax also supply the voice in those voicemail messages we heard that seemed to have been left by a bottom? dr. phil had experts analyze the voice mails against the voice of the hoaxer it. we' -- hoaxter. we'll have a closer look. and we'll talk about the person behind the hoax, at his past,

how. here's nbc's kristen dahlgren. i don't want to be. >> reporter: as ronaiah tuiasosopo, the man behind the manti te'o hoax, answered dr. phil's questions -- >> people say, does he have any feel being this, the truth is i hurt every day from the decisions i made. >> reporter: he admitted he was motivated to create the fake girlfriend because of his own romantic love for the football star and a painful past. >> i want to talk about why you felt moved to create an alter e ego. >> it went through what i went through as a child. >> reporter: it took the tv psychologist several tries to get an answer to one of most perplexing questions -- was it really tuiasosopo alone who left the voice dmalmails. >> i want the truth.
5:32 am
>> reporter: he first went behind a screen to do the voice. >> i love you so much, sweet dreams. >> reporter: the show was analyzed by experts. >> 87%, 40%, 48%. not conclusive. >> reporter: they sent a producer to tuiasosopo's house where he said he made the calls in private. whe with the producer's phone he recorded this. >> sweet dreams. >> this time there was no question -- match, match, match. >> reporter: perhaps conclusive proof. but for many, still not enough. even with this public apology to manti te'o. >> i can never express how sorry i am. >> reporter: for what appears to be simply a cruel hoax that fooled a young star and has fascinated a nation. for "today," kristen dahlgren, nbc news, los angeles. now here's erica. >> thanks. some people saying, hey, this was bound to happen. the death of an extreme sports competitor. unfortunately, it did happen this week at the x-games. it is raising a question again
